Description

There's always one more grave to dig.

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war.…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives - and those of everyone they hold dear - will be hovering on the edge of the grave.

Missed Kat and Bones

There is a new addition that I would have never thought of! Please, please let there be more of this series coming soon, It can't wait as long as we did for this installment for the next. Tavia's narration is second to none and she really brings this book to life compared to another populare series; the Black Dagger Brotherhood which I don't really like but everyone else seem to love, maybe it me but I think it's the BDB's narrator (I think he's just awful, I think Robert Petkoff would have done the series justice). This series is simply amazing, for me this is the best series I've listened to and would recommend it to anyone. Everyone I've suggested this series to couldn't believe how well written and read it is. The twists, turns and tie-ins between the other books are handled so well I would like the opportunity to meet Ms. Frost just to pick her brain. If you like the Night Huntress series, You will not be disappointed with this book.

Still worth a read but a bit lazy

I’ve read the night huntress series maybe 3-4 times so far. When I was in high school I was obsessed. When I was in college it was still entertaining. And now I listened to them on the metro all in a row, including the spin offs. Frost is very very good at writing the initial chapter of each story but after awhile they become a bit repetitive. I may not have enjoyed this book as much as the others, but it’s still a good book. And the series is one of my all time favorites.

After this point beware of SPOILERS

Problems I had with this book:
-ok so we aren’t going to explore her daughters powers? You introduce a brand new cool species and you don’t go beyond mentioning its existence? This is just like how frustrating I was with some aspects of the Vlad spin off.
-the whole book is just recycled storylines from her other books in this series!!!! Cat KNEW bones had the regenerative power and she still fell into a hopeless depression convinced he was dead? Even if he was dead her reaction was quite pathetic. Lost respect for Cat. Her flaws used to make sense and when she was in the dark I usually was as well. But now I couldn’t stop thinking “Cat you idiot do you have zero ability to see below the surface of things?? You yourself have used the shapeshifter ruse SEVERAL TIMES AND YOU STILL FALL FOR IT???”
-I’m so tired of the stupid protection-feminism-logic argument. CAN WE NOT. Just... please be more creative
-many of the characters who I once thought so creative and thought would get interesting back stories such as Marie, Ian and Fabian were just... static. I feel like fans wanted another book so bad that Jeaniene gave them what they (we) wanted. This has happened to almost all of my favorite series.

While these points seem harsh I don’t regret the purchase. I won’t read or listen to it again because it’s more of a listing of events then character development and whatnot. If you’ve been a fan of the series since the beginning as I have it’s worth a read. Just for closure :) thank you Jeaniene Frost for such a wonderful universe.

Disappointing

I've never had a problem with any of Jeaniene Frost's books that I have read but this one was very disappointing. Without going into everything, since the spoilers would be aplenty, I will just keep it short. It was as if Cat took a stupid pill or something. I was constantly thinking 'Are you serious?' And 'Duh'. She seemed to have trouble realizing the most simplest of things, not thinking things through, and being lastly being logical in general. You can try it out if you want but I'm returning it. Also, listen or read the first two Night Prince books BEFORE this one or you will get some spoilers. Reading order is on Frost's website.

not as good as previous

(!Spoilers)Sorry but for me really not as good as the previous books. I can see why making Cat find out she is a mother might seem like a nice traditional end (ie. love marriage child ) but for me this just made it a bit sickly. what I loved is the passion between Cat and Bones, the way they can't keep their hands off each other and that everything they do is out of pure love and to protect each other. in this book you get this in the first part a bit but as soon as the child is mentioned, even before it is clearly said that it is her child (easy to guess), all that love and passion is directed towards the child and frankly it was not my cup of tea. I just can't imagine either of them with a child and the idea that they will really be able to keep her hidden and that they will not be recognised or have problems follow them is not realistic. Plus I still don't get that Don really wouldn't have told them what he knew. No matter his role in it he was dead and he always cared first for his team and Cat so by not talking he knew he was putting them in danger. He wouldn't have done that. There was nothing for him to gain by remaining silent.

yeah so basically just felt like Jeaniene Frost wanted to end this series and didn't quite know how. shame.

THE END OF AN EPIC SAGA

Well it's pretty much all been said before so all I can add is a BIG thank you to Jeaniene Frost for giving her fans such a brilliant, witty, action-packed story that was full of drama, loveable characters, surprises and, as Cat and Bones sail away into the sunset together, finally a joyous HEA is awaiting them. I will miss these two special characters that have given me many hours of listening pleasure.

Also, thank you Tavia Gilbert for your skilled narration, you breathed life, soul and emotion into Cat and Bones and also the many characters that crossed paths with them.

Worth a credit? I stand clapping and shouting ENCORE ENCORE but I will just have to face the fact that the final curtain has fallen on this particular act. Hell YES worth ALL the credits, ALL the sleepless nights and ALL the many take-outs when I was just too engrossed in the plot to cook.

OMG--Can this series get any better? You Bet!

I first discovered this series on a sale! It was one of the best deals I got. I immediately bought the rest of the series up to book six. When I saw this in pre-order--it was a hands-down buy! I eagerly awaited the book. It seems the Gods were with me since I had a snow day today. I listened to this book all day. And I could not stop listening!

I kept wondering how Cat and Bones were going to deal with the new director.The ending for the director was a bit of a let down. However the other enemies they have to fight are richly rewarded. We learn why Uncle Don is still around and we have a visit or three with Marie LeVeau and a further link between Cat and Tate. As usual, when Cat and Bones need to solve a problem, they have different views on how to do it. Bones does not let Cat in on the "real" plan while pretending to give her the impression she has her way. We also see why Bones and Ian are friends. Ian is soooo misunderstood--still promiscuous--but sooo misunderstood.

I was as heartbroken as I was elated throughout this book. Each chapter in Cat and Bone's life just keeps getting better. As always Ms. Frost’s blends, death-defying action, intense emotional scenes, and hot-hot-hot intimacy. I only wish the series did not have to end. By the by, if you have not read the short "Home for the Holidays" or Vlad's series, you will be confused by some references and the timeline.

Other than that, I don't know how to explain more without giving away spoilers. I just know that this is one of my favorite in the series. It is a must read if you love Cat and Bones and their antics. I am already starting my second listen! Enjoy!

Never Expected This!!!!

I give this the book over 5 stars, it deserves it. Jeaniene Frost did an amazing job.

A fantastic addition to a fantastic series.... I have never even thought of such a plot in this series... I was speechless during this book, couldn't believe the things that happened, and couldn't believe its ending....

This isn't the usual book of a mission and and ending.. its packed with life changing events.. This means that the next book will be a new, fresh, and exciting book!!

Narration is great as always..

Unhappy

I am sad. I was not really expecting to love this book, since I was equally disappointed with the last two installments. However, being the series finale, I was hopeful. My issue was mainly with the story, as the narration was very well done, as always, with one exception. The voice of Bones was slighlty different to my ears, and I found that annoying. The Night Huntress Series was one of my first forays into UF, and I fell head over heels with Cat, Bones and the rest of the characters in the Night Huntress World. I loved their sarcastic wit, their personal conflicts, their steamy scenes, their butt-kicking action. I loved them all, and it was easy to do. Now, I feel like the romance is over for us. This story felt forced. I think that sums it up. I was not upset about the big surprise this book revealed, I just wasn't emotionally invested enough to care at that point. I wanted to love this last book, but I found myself muttering under my breath at several points in the story. Several things were taken from previous books and "refried" for use in this one. Well, I will miss Cat and Bones. I can only hope that some of the other characters will show up in their own Night Huntress World books.

A Spectaculous Ending to a Totally Perfect series

Any additional comments?

I Stayed up all night, I was so excited to get this book and get listening.....

With some fun reveals, one that’s very surprising and ultimately a bit frustrating, Cat and Bones end their adventures with a bang. I started Up From the Grave with a bit of sadness knowing that this was it, the last book in this amazing series. Cat and Bones have been a fun fixture in my reading life for years and it’s always sad to say goodbye.

The story starts with Cat learning that her old team of Tate, Juan, Dave and Cooper, have been missing for weeks and Cat’s ghostly uncle Don fears that Madigan (evil leader, that’s all I ever refer to him as) has them and if that’s the case, they’re as good as dead. Cat won’t just leave them in Madigan’s hands so she and Bones start to follow leads to figure out where the guys are and this leads to some very disturbing revelations about what, exactly, Madigan has been researching all these years. He’s been one of the master minds behind some dangerous genetic testing that goes all the way back to the days Cat was working for her Uncle and leading her team. What they currently find is that the testing was successful and has resulted in a 7 year old girl, who is a vampire/ghoul hybrid and threatens to start a war between the groups. Cat and Bones need to rescue her old team, find the little girl and figure out who the main person is above Madigan that’s been funding and backing this research. The answer proves to be a dangerous one for Cat and her friends along with a huge reveal that revolves around the young girl, Katie.

The action is everything fans of this series have come to expect. Many past characters are nicely woven into the story and plot and all play pivotal roles, especially Denise and my personal favorite Ian. It was nice to see them all interact together for one last hurrah and they ended up needing everyone’s abilities to take on the book’s big bad. There are deaths, deceptions, lots of violence – it’s action packed and exciting.

I love seeing the progression of Cat and Bones relationship. They’re not perfect, but they’ve both grown together so much that just as Cat believes, they really can weather anything together. While we do get some sexy moments between them, personally I wanted something more. I can’t say that anything specifically was missing it was just for the last time we’re going to see this couple on page, As you may be able to tell, I'm having trouble letting go of this series lol......

It was bittersweet listening to the last page of this book. Cat and Bones and their lives and the many adventures they've taken me on will always hold a special place for me. I finished this book and felt like, yes, their story is complete.............. Ending this review On a very positive note (just trying to tell my brain this) - I can re-listen to the series as often as I like. YA :))

Cat & Bones goes Twilight? Ernsthaft?

Das habe ich mir beim Zuhören ab einer bestimmten Stelle mehr als einmal gedacht. Ich will aus Spoiler-Gründen nicht unbedingt sagen, welcher TW-Aspekt es ist, aber für mich ist es einer, den ich damals dumm fand und das hat sich bis heute nicht geändert, zumal es teilweise wirklich wie ein 1:1-Umsatz erscheint.
Ich glaube, hätte sich Frau Frost an ihren ursprünglichen plan gehalten, und diese Handlung über mehrere Bücher aufgebaut, sodass wir die Entwicklung von Cat und Co in dieser Hinsicht über einen längeren Zeitraum hätten mitverfolgen können, wäre ich mit diesem Plotelement glaub ich sogar klar gekommen. Aber so wirkt es einfach sehr „Husch-Husch-die Waldfee“ und grade dadurch unglaubwürdig.
Sehr schade ist auch, dass sie einem neuen Charakter und vor allem aus Bones richtiggehende Mary-Sues macht. Ich hatte Frost grade deshalb auf meiner Lieblingsliste, da sie darauf bisher verzichtet hatte – ihre Charaktere hatten zwar oft große Macht, aber damit verbunden auch immer Schwächen bzw. es wurde klar gemacht, dass solche Kräfte nicht quasi über Nacht kommen.

Was mit gut gefallen hat, ist wie immer Tavia Gilberts Darstellung sowie einzelne schöne Szenen – vor allem Ian hat hier einen Brüller nach dem anderen.

Dem Buch selbst würde ich sehr knappe 3 Sterne geben, das Hörbuch bekommt wegen Frau Gilberts großem Talent als Sprecherin noch einen mehr.

Cat = Übermutter?! Eher schlecht

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Up from the Grave gefallen?

Die Geschichte ist eigentlich wie immer gut...

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

Gibt keine Option hier zu schreiben was schlecht ist... Cat wird ohne ihr Kind zu kennen zur Übermutter??? Wie lächerlich

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Tavia Gilbert versuchen?

Ich finde Tavia Gilbert an sich nicht schlecht, aber sie scheint im Laufe der Night Huntress Geschichte zu vergessen, dass Cat eine Kämpferin ist... Sie verleiht Cat mit ihrer nervigen Art sie zu sprechen keinerlei Kraft und Mut und macht aus Cat eine verweichlichte Figur. Total nervig!!!
